Gales forecast for 17th / 18th January
16th January, 2013
Current weather forecasts for the Irish Sea predict East or SouthEast Gale force winds from the evening of Thursday 17th January and during Friday 18th January that may lead to some disruption to Steam Packet services.
During Thursday night into Friday a band of rain will edge in from the west, turning to snow, initially on the hills but likely to penetrate to lower levels during the day. South-easterly winds will make it feel bitterly cold, temperatures only around 3 Celsius at best for much of the day.
